SHOPPING OUR STASH #288 - Days of Yore

Good Tuesday morning to you, friends! I'm your hostess this week at SHOPPING OUR STASH! For our challenge, we want to see your cards or projects that have an old world/vintage/distressed/shabby chic look to them. Here's what I came up with:

 and a bit of snark on the inside!

I bet you thought this was going to be one of those mushy Valentine cards. HA! Fooled you!

Much of what I've used on my card is at least 7 years old. The DP, the rhinestones, the pearl flowers, all from 2008 or 2009! I think the stamp set I used is from 2010. Score! All the DP paper have the edges inked and distressed. The rhinestone flower stems and pearl flowers were frankensteined together from two different packages. (And I still have leftovers of both!) The sentiments were both on one line each, but I cut them in half-ish (Gasp!) and used my MISTI to line up the two parts.

So, ready to get your vintage on? I hope so, we'd love to see what you create at Shopping Our Stash!
This is Marina's last day as our Guest Designer. I'd like to say a BIG THANK YOU for joining us this month. Your creations are amazing and I hope to see more of them in our gallery!
